I met Elizabeth on ModelMayhem. She is new to the area, and was looking to meet some photographers in San Jose. I loved the pictures she had on her profile page. She has such a sweet face that I knew I had to do a wedding editorial with her! Once we decided to shoot together, the search for a wedding dress started. I didn't even know where to start. I checked out stores like Target and Jessica McClintock and came up empty handed. On a whim, I emailed a local shop on First Street in San Jose. The owner emailed me back and said to give him a call. Turns out, Sonthai Gi moved to San Jose from Pasadena three years ago and opened up Bridal Gown Studio. He's an amazingly talented designer. His studio was filled with incredible gowns and he let me pick one out for my shoot! Words cannot express how simply overjoyed I was.
Saturday, Elizabeth met Erika and I in the morning to get ready for the shoot. We met Lucas, the male model in this editorial, at the park. It was breezy and sunny and an absolutely gorgeous day. Everyone was joking and having a great time. It really must have been the most FUN fashion shoot I've ever done.
And I'm so happy with the photos. Please enjoy!
